Criminal And Crimefighter
Conversations 219 – Special-Girl, Freedom Female, & Admiral Star & Slowku
On “Tony” & “Carlito”
If you follow these comics or my posts on social media you should get the sense I love both comics and rap. Also anime, genre-shows and other elements of “nerd culture” as well. Mixing all these elements make the strange (but tasty?) gumbo that are these comics. One thing I’m about is bridging any gaps between “nerd culture” and “hiphop culture”. They are similar and cross into each other in many unexpected ways. Make no mistake, GOOD rappers are nerds.
They are people obsessed with pop culture and vocabulary; and they put real research into what they rap about. Also comic writers and artists much like rappers are often completely screwed by the companies they work for. That’s a whole other topic for another day though.
Tomorrow all these characters return to get into why Slowku left Special-Girl to live with Admiral Star. Hope you enjoy and see ya then!
